Cuke Heart Sutra Center
Sokoji On Page two-sided Heart Sutra Chant Card
The old two-sided chant card used at Sokoji in the sixties - where the SF Zen Center got its start. The translation below the words was put there by Shunryu Suzuki just to give the literal meaning. Allen Ginsberg liked it so much that he received Suzuki's permission to sing it in public.

Thanks to Janice Karnegis who sent it and wrote "Here is a scan of the piece, from Katagiri roshi's files at Minnesota Zen Meditation Center. Just passing it along." Since putting this up I've found my copy without the words written on it. May scan it and put it up here in time.
Now go to the Cuke Basket under the Buddhism and Nothings section and get this chant card on tee shirts and other items. Check it out and support cuke.com with a purchase.
